According to this infographic depicting projections for the 2012 online Black Friday spending, from November 23rd until New Year's day, it is estimated that $96 billion will be spent.
With the advanced technological upgrades that many phones have received over the past couple months, a lot more Americans will turn to their mobiles to check out deals. As well as people who own tablets tend to spend an average of $123 when they shop online, which is $21 more than laptop users. On days like Black Friday or Boxing Day when malls are overrun with people, it is a lot easier on the nerves to shop from home. However, the downside to 2012 online Black Friday shopping is slow sites due to high traffic. More people abandon the items left in their Internet carts than their actual metal retail carts.
